Sounds to me like quite a good place to fish. Especially over the warmer months when there is Kingfish around.16/09/2007 at 7:41 am #8944St_PaulParticipant
sounds very similar to taylors mistake down here as far as species go.
Have seen the odd kingfish caught during Jan – Feb from there. Had one monster a kahawai I hooked on light spinning gear once.16/09/2007 at 9:54 am #8945

Getting this thread back on topic.
People seem to be quite busy Labour weekend. So probably not the best time to organise such a trip. Early October marks the start of the trout season so I probably would not be thinking about Surf Casting.
I feel any ‘WestCoast trip’ would be a real drama to organise and would have to many clashes. So the only real option would be Kaikouria or smaller trips to a local Beach in Marlborough and Canterbury.
Looking at the Calendar.
October: 20th or maybe sometime in mid November?
Would need to consult tides.19/09/2007 at 7:42 pm #9007

this seems to have dried up? anyone still keen for another trip at some point?10/10/2007 at 8:26 pm #9154
The recent rain has made trout fishing a waste of time.
I was planning to do a night-time fish targeting elephant fish the weekend of labour day. I was going to target a site relatively close to Blenheim but would drive further south if anyone else is interested.
Oaro could be a option further south. It is about 20 minutes south of Kaikouria I guess. The beach is quite sandy but it could have slightly to much kelp.
The site near to Blenheim is a long sandy beach with little snags. I prefer fishing off sandy beaches at night.13/10/2007 at 4:01 pm #9170
Your best option i would suggest would be the saltworks and also yields rig oftenly two. Thats just my suggestion as for some reason the spinys tend to be less prevalent than the beaches north of this ie cable station and the spectacular seaview beach (which can yield alsorts like gurnard to carpet pests(sharks) and eels but i have found that the spinys also occur in big numbers also and are hard to get past before the bigger ones other species get a chance. Just my two cents worth!15/11/2007 at 8:22 pm #9317
